Ancestry adds London, England, Metropolitan Police Pension Registers, 1852-1932

Ancestry's new database of Metropolitan Police Pension Registers MEPO 21 from The National Archives of the UK, is a collection full of detail for London policemen.
These are registers of pensions awarded to Metropolitan Police officers who retired or resigned from the force between 1852 and 1932, and who were granted, or who (after 1890) qualified for, a police pension.
There's a wealth of personal information, place of birth, marital status, parents and next of kin, service details, and from 1923, details of spouse (date of birth and place of their marriage). Much of the information is on a second page so scroll to the right to see that.

This does not appear to be on Ancestry. It is not listed under New Releases, and nor can I find it through the card catalogue
